Today we populate the waters of our Avatar-themed Floating Mountains paludarium, called the Ember Islands. The Ember Islands will become the future home of our massive pet fire ant colony, called the Phoenix Empire, but before they can move in, we needed to create a stable aquatic system in order to handle the garbage, feces, and dead bodies the fire ants might drop into the water, lest they foul up their own drinking water and get poisoned. Watch as we add some water beasts to act as clean up crew for the waters of the Ember Islands. Hope you enjoy today's episode! #Avatar #AntFarm #Paludarium
Ant love forever! This video was shot in 4K Ultra HD resolution.

is it a good idea to use GMOs to try to make ants with things like human intelligence, the ability to make tools, creativity and abstract thinking, individual personalities emotions, and consciousness.

Ants can act like the mafia sometimes. Here's my evidence... Ant: *dies* Other ants: "Get rid of the body." *Throws the body in the water and goes on with their business* Conclusion.. they use other ants like they're tools for personal gain and remove them once they have no more use.

I think maybe some cardinal tetras would be quite nice in the tank as the beta is blue and red and would look quite nice in a shoal
TheVortexGamer Před 4 dny
Who else wants this to be the two-floor paludarioum in the ant house? I think it would be cool to have an even bigger space that could have more animals, more fish, and more plants. And of course more ants.

Nooooo Mikey! That betta is going to go to town on those chilis and amanos as soon as his mouth is big enough! I mean, if the amanos are big enough, they may have a shot, but chilis are so dinky that they are definitely on the menu in about 3 or 4 months. He's a really pretty boy, but maybe move him to a different setup (or at least keep a really close eye on your rasbora population). I know you are a responsible keeper, and there are a lot of hiding places in there, but I've made the mistake of keeping an adult betta with nano fish. I mean, occasionally you get a really chill betta, and it manages to work (I had a massive female who was fine with my ember tetras and only attacked snails for whatever reason), but I lost a half dozen galaxy rasboras once too. Just, um, proceed with extreme caution. Warnings aside, you have the coolest looking paludarium ever. The habitats you build are truly spectacular.

Either the school of fish or the troop of shrimp should be called The Ember Island Players. Totally a good opportunity for this!

Orange dwarf crayfish have a very aggressive hunting tendency so it may get taken for a ride by your betta but the amono shrimp potentially may be hunted relentlessly being most vulnerable durring moulting.

I thought beta fish had to be by themselves because I used to have 4 gold fish, a gorami fish and a bottom feeder and I wanted to get a beta fish but the person at the pet store said that beta fish will fight the other fish so they have to be by themselves in

If you still haven't decided a name for the betta, I think you should name him Odin, the name of the norse god of death. Or, he could be named Sonar.
